L'Oreal Hair Expertise Extraordinary Oil hair products from Influenster in exchange for my honest review and feedback. I decided that before I really reviewed them I would use them for a period of time to ensure that my review is as accurate and honest as possible. I lead a pretty hectic lifestyle- I work full time, am the mom to three amazing boys and one amazing puppy, and when I have "free time" (LOL!) I'm on the go- gym, swimming for the boys, etc. I have long hair and since I work in a busy manufacturing environment I usually just throw it up into a ponytail or bun and go. Although this works best for my lifestyle, it wreaks havoc on my hair and I find myself with a lot of breakage in the area when I put my hair up, and since my hair is long, I get really dry ends.
I began using the Extraordinary Oil products as a part of my regular routine. I received the shampoo and conditioner as well as the hair mask and I used the shampoo and conditioner about 3 times a week and the hair mask once or twice a week. After only using all three products once I found myself surprised at how soft my hair already was, but I really wanted the chance to experience the product more before I put together my review.
So, here I am, approximately three weeks later. My hair is truly softer than it has ever been, and with less breakage than before. I continue to wear my hair in a ponytail or bun most of the time, but I'm happy to know that my hair is more protected from what I put it through than before. I like the scent of the products, although I do find that the hair mask scent isn't as nice as the shampoo and conditioner scent. My only complaint is that I find that I'm going through the shampoo very quickly. The product has a thinner consistency than many of the shampoo products that I've used in the past and since my hair is long I've been going through my bottle quickly. I find the consistency of the conditioner matches up to what I've used in the past.
I will definitely continue to seek out this product in the future. I like how it makes my hair feel, and I'm glad that it is having some effect on the breakage that I experience. Putting on the mask is a nice treat, and one that I enjoy taking the time to do (I can always read a book while it's on, right?). L'Oreal Paris Hair Expertise products have definitely met my expectations for what I expect to experience from a hair product.
